Services offered by Navitar and Special Optics
Optical and Mechanical Design
High Volume Production
Unbeatable Customer Service and Support
We are skilled in designing high resolution, diffraction limited lens systems and ensure lens performance through extensive testing both during manufacture and after assembly and have worked with customers in a variety of markets including defense, homeland security, biotechnology, high performance commercial, and projection.
Custom Microscope Objectives
Navitar and its Special Optics division specialize in the designing and manufacturing of custom microscope objective lenses for researchers and OEMS who require a solution to a complex application that cannot be solved by off-the-shelf microscope objective lenses. Our custom objectives are used in applications such as:
Cold Fermion/Atom Trapping, Confocal Microscopy, STED Microscopy, Deep Tissues Imaging, Microscopy and Analysis of Quantum Structures, Super Resolution Microscopy, Failure Analysis of Structural Materials, and Live Cell Fluorescent Microscopy.
Custom Projection Solutions
We have partnered with some of the world’s foremost producers of dome theater equipment, simulation and modeling technologies, and providers of high resolution, full motion immersive environments and display systems. Our designs include lenses for OEM applications, simulators, command and control rooms, planetariums, tradeshow booths, museum exhibits, Broadway productions, military bases and rides at major theme parks.
Whether you need a lens for an existing projector, have your sights on using a new ultra high resolution projector such as the Sony SXRD 4K or JVC 4K/2K D-ILA, or are currently designing a new system, Navitar’s engineering and design team can create a custom projection lens solution for you.
